I shoot mainly portraiture and I enjoy shooting a variety of people. So often, I'll come across those who are camera shy, but I usually don't have a problem once I start shooting.

Recently, I've been encountering quite a bit of people who just refuse to sit or stand still and the images come out a bit soft. I shoot in mainly shoot in 1.4 - 2.8 and the movement shifts the focus.

So I'm wondering if anyone else has experience shooting people who move quite a bit. I do spot checks when I'm shooting, but the small screen can be a bit deceiving. Anyone have any tips or remedies?

Thanks!

If someone could move this to the appropriate section, I would appreciate it!

You could stop down a bit more to increase your DOF to help compensate for movement. Also, as soon as the camera locks focus, take your shot. You may also be able to pose your subject against something solid (such as a wall), that may help eliminate some movement.
